We Need Your Help
As you all know, each year the Foundation holds many activities which include the November "Fun" Raiser Party, Luncheon & Fashion Show, Pro-Am Golf event, and a Bluegrass & BBQ event. These events help raise monies to support worthy activities and projects in South Sarasota County by providing financial grants to qualified not for profit organizations. Don't forget our Huggy Bears program that utilizes volunteers to sew, stuff, and deliver teddy bears to children in the ER at Venice Hospital; and we collect Box Tops For Education for the Taylor Ranch School. Drop off your box tops at the Library or in the Women's Locker Room.
There are numerous ways of helping whether it be joining a committee to help set up for an event, soliciting area merchants for raffle items and/or donations, selling tickets before or at an event, serving on the Grant Committee, volunteering to be a cashier for an event, joining a team to help paint a home in the Habitat for Humanity "A Brush With Kindness" program .........just to name a few. It takes many volunteers to make an event successful.
